Bathroom renovation can be a daunting task, but there are some quick and easy improvements that you can make without having to call in a contractor. By taking on some of these projects yourself, you can save money and have the satisfaction of knowing that you did it yourself.
If you’re looking for something productive to do on the weekend – or even just an afternoon – here are some quick and easy bathroom renovation (improvements) that you can make:
Half an Hour to a Luxury Shower
The first quick and easy improvement is to replace your old shower head with a new one. This can be done in just a few minutes and will make a big difference in the look and feel of your shower. The premium feel doesn’t have to be exclusive to hotel stays; look for a shower head with multiple settings, such as massage, rain, and pulsing.
You’ll thank yourself as it helps you start the day off right, or unwind after a long one.
Bathroom Cabinet Upgrade
Upgrading your bathroom cabinets is another simple procedure. If you have a beautiful cabinet now that’s just a bit tired, you might not want to replace it entirely. Here are some improvements you can make to have it looking good as new:
->Doors and Drawers
If you’re looking for a quick fix and don’t want to get your hands too dirty, you can purchase new doors and drawer fronts to replace the old ones. It’s a good way to refresh the old style or add something new.
->A New Mirror
A new bathroom mirror can also be a quick and easy improvement. You can find mirrors in all shapes and sizes, so there’s sure to be one that fits your cabinet perfectly.
->Repaint the Cabinet
Repainting the doors can give them a new lease of life. Sand it and paint it to have your cabinet looking fresh again. Go for a classic white or something with a pop of colour to switch things up.
If your tile is looking old and dingy, it might be time for a re-grout. This is a relatively easy project that you can do yourself, and it will make a big difference in the appearance of your bathroom. You can find grout in any hardware shop and it’s really simple to apply. Just follow the directions on the packet.
New Bathroom Fixtures
Another improvement is to replace old or outdated bathroom fixtures. This could include things like the taps, towel rack, toilet paper holder, etc. You’re quite spoilt for choice when it comes to places to buy these fixtures, so take your pick and go with the style you think would work best.
This is a great option to go for if you’re just looking for a refresh, rather than full home renovation services. It’s not the easiest task on this list, but it will make a huge difference.
A Fresh Coat of Paint
If you’re at the start of your DIY journey and looking to get better with a paintbrush, a good place to start is the bathroom. It’s probably one of the smaller rooms in your house so won’t take too long.
You might opt for a new colour, or just refresh the current one; just make sure you’ve got the right kind of paint for a bathroom.
Reorganise Your Bathroom Storage
If your bathroom is cluttered and cramped, it might be time to reorganize your bathroom storage. This could involve getting rid of some things that you don’t use, or simply finding a better way to store the things that you do. You might not always have floor space, but you might have vertical space; take a look at tall shelving units to see what might work for you.
Replace Any Broken Tiles
If you have any broken tiles that you’ve been putting off, now is the time to replace them. You’ll surprise yourself with your DIY skills with the right tools, tutorials, and – of course – tiles. If you’ve left it too long, you probably don’t even notice your broken tiles anymore, but you’ll certainly notice your fixes.
And finally, if you’re trying to make quick improvements with minimal effort, you can’t go wrong with getting a new set of towels. Head down to the shop, choose your colours and pay – it can’t be more simple than that!
A new colour scheme can be refreshing and could be exactly what your bathroom needs.
